Question about 1996 Toyota Tacoma
You don't mention whether there is any issue with the clutch and where is disengages so I assume that hasn't been a problem.
If this is the case then there are several items you should check. Start with the cheap stuff.
Check the return spring for the clutch pedal. I know there have been some issues with these on Tacoma's in the past. Make sure there is nothing interfering with the pedals travel in and around the spring.
Next place/item to is for leaks near the slave cylinder. Also check for any debri that might interfere with the operation of the slave cylinder.
Your next item is the Fluid. It may need changing. This will enable you to purge the system as well.
From this point it gets a bit pricey. Even if you don't find any leaks you may have issues with internal seals in the slave cylinder or a bad clutch master. I have seen a lot of recommendations for replace the slave cylinder at the same time that you replace the clutch so it could be that there have been a lot of problems with it.The clutch springs could also be worn.
Please check out the simple stuff and let me know what you find.

1st let me say your truck uses what is called a "Hydraulic release clutch"
This problem is caused by either a defective clutch master cylinder which is what the pedal pushes on, or it is more likely caused by the slave cylinder which is down on the side of the transmission and is what actually pushes the clutch pressure plate and makes the pedal come back up, the slave would be the 1st thing to replace, you will need to have special bleeding equipment to get the air out of the system when u replace the slave cylinder so this is best left to a shop to repair, in any event it is a 2 person job, here is the part number and the price of the new slave cylinder.
